This classic London Routemaster is being used a promotional tool for 'Crabbie's' when seen today in Plymouth City Centre. It seemed to be quite obviously aimed at the University with the bus parked next to one of the nearest pubs from the Campus.
The Routemaster in question was 459 CLT which was in fact preserved at one point before being bought by Crabbies and converted for this use with a full kitchen/bar area on the lower deck. The bus was immaculately turned out and was a credit to its use. When going down Royal Parade I don't think anyone will have missed it! Unfortunately my attempt at a photo on RP was ruined by a Dart, how typical!
